BUTWAL, Sept 2: Central member of the Nepali Congress (NC) Sujata Koirala has said the NC would select the candidate of the prime minister if the situation arises for the formation of government under the leadership of NC.
At a news conference organized by the Rupandehi chapter of the Nepal Press Union (NPU) in Butwal on Sunday morning, Koirala said it was natural to have various opinions in a democratic party.
She blamed that a senior leader of the party has been criticizing the party president despite that everyone has to accept the decision of the majority and added that it will not be good for the party.
Stating that no one can harm the party if he likes to walk alone with activities against the party president, Koirala warned that the party would seek clarification from him.
Expressing the belief that political crisis of the country will be resolved at the earliest, Koirala said the NC will find out solution by bringing all into consensus.
She said that discussion among political parties is going on about the alternative either to reinstate the Constituent Assembly (CA) or to hold elections to promulgate the new constitution and added that the discussions were positive.
The NC central member further said that the new constitution would be endorsed after finalizing disputed issues by reinstating the parliament after the formation of a government under the leadership of NC.
It is wrong to say that going for federalism would divide the country, she said, adding there was no alternative to going for federalism as consensus has been already forged on six states.
Koirala said it would not take much time to promulgate the constitution if consensus is forged on the remaining issues including federalism as 90 per cent of the works of constitution writing has been completed in the four years´ period
